There is a deal on groupon today if you're interested.
I'm getting that Odeon deal though.
I'm a bit skint though.
I might get the Odeon deal.
AND TO NOT READ ANY REVIEWS - V IMPORTANT
He's nearly buckled.
it's alright, didn't feel any different, then it flushes out all the natural bacteria. Probably wouldn't bother tbh
put water up your bum and then suck it all out again?
Although I can't help thinking there's a New Age guru somewhere counting his/her money and laughing. "I sold 'em those dreamcatcher things and that Feng Shui bollocks, but I can't believe they actually went for the hosepipe-up-the-arsehole idea!"
i watch a couple of video bloggers who had it done that were on a wieght loss kick, one lost 8lbs!
If it was medically necessary why ask DIS?
.....'wow! what a lifestyle.....wow! what a choice'
and to think DIS laughed at poor Frank
Its meant to give your insides a nice clean out and maybe help you poo better. I DONT KNOW WHICH IS WHY I AM ASKING
she's normally right about these sort of things.
Sorry but it did sound like a lifestyle choice when you say 'groupon has got a deal on at the moment'
all I need is a garden hose, some rubber gloves and a tarpaulin.
hmmmm actually i think that one of the joys that the people who like this have, is in seeing the 'bits' go down the tube.....perhaps you need to have a clear plastic tube to 'let the stuff out gracefully'.....you could lay it past the recipiants head so they can examine it all closely
When it flushes out it's like shitting like you have never shit before. Quite the selling point.
Also, how do you know this about your sister?!
Mine's still pregnant.
Just got a new desk.
And documented the whole process.
That was good.
Surprised you haven't heard of it.
(F365 is Football 365, they have a forum. A coffee colonic is a regular colonic with cold coffee used instead of water, I guess.)
and nothing else.
What's that from? Always makes me laugh.
I had to have two enemas in the space of 7 hours before the procedure I had last time I was in hospital. That was distinctly unpleasant (mostly because you have to hold it as long as possible)
I hope you did. Would have made the whole process a bit more exciting.
Then have to have another enema and wait to have the needle shoved up your arse again.
So in many way, it's better than winning the world cup
1) There's offers for colonic irrigation every day on Groupon. I wouldn't rush to get one just to 'catch the deal'.
2) it's absolute bollocks. Whoever came up with this as a therapy is laughing all the way to the bank. Don't be a chump.
3) If you're going to give yourself a coffee enema, don't make this mistake... (sorta NSFW)
my morbid curiousity is nagging me.
you'd be well advised to let the coffee cool down first.
a) It makes literally no medical sense. Your body gets rid of waste on its own - the whole idea that some waste stays in your body and needs to be removed by quasi-medical needs is factually untrue.
b) For that reason it's an utter con.
c) I actually have one of the few medical conditions that the colonic irrigation apparatus was orginally designed as a treatment for. (I was actually the second person in the UK to have a certain operation that allows what I'm going to call for dramatic effect "advanced colonic irrigation", fact fans.) People using a medical treatment designed to help someone with my medical condition and using it as a luxury lifestyle choice are taking the piss frankly. It's basically the equivalent of using a wheelchair for the day and telling people who can't walk what a brilliantly advantageous thing it is.
The bowel is self cleaning! Just eat some bran flakes ffs!
But as a result my bowels don't actually empty themselves so I've got a thing called a modified ace where part of my upper bowel has been moulded to link to a hole in my stomach called a stoma. I stick a cathether into the stoma and wash the water in from the top once a day.
I used to basically use the exact equipment used for colonic irrigation until I was 15 or so but it needs someone else to do it for you and isn't as effective, hence the operation.
This is too much information, isn't it? It definitely feels like too much information.
I regret starting this thread. I don't want a colonic.
it's going to be great. the time isn't right yet though
It's one of the few DiS threads where I know with near-certainty I know more about the subject than anyone else who posts on here!
but it does mean for once I'm posting without a fear at the back of my mind that somebody's going to spot that I've literally no idea what I'm talking about and successfully call me out on it!
and now that this thread has prompted it, i think i can do without one
perforated bowel and infection are only two of the possible risks. Look at this link. http://www.ebm-first.com/colonic-irrigation.html
Only a unatic would do it.
(Naturally, I've tried it once. It was at yoga camp and was part of the holistic bollocks and I didn't want to be a spoilsport. absolutely nothing was *expelled* despite several atempts by the *nurse*, thus proving that my colon looks after itself perfectly well without the aid of dangerous moneygrabbing charlatans. I had a sore gut for days afterwards, because small girls are not meant to have a gallon of tepid water pumped up their poochute, end of story. Just horrid.)
Thank you very ,uch :''(
I've been pumping about 4 litres of water into myself once a day for nearly 20 years now and, as long as you've got proper equipment, it should go in at a sufficiently gentle rate to avoid that sort of damage. I hope so, anyway.
Infection's a possibility obviously but, above all, it's entirely unnecessary.
but there are lots of instances of people in the hands of inexpert practitioners who end up bruised or nicked, which is obviously a concern when the procedure is, as you say, wholly unecessary (unless you are in the minority of people who ahve a condition which is helped by the cleansing).
